Waiting on some fuse clips to firm up design. Will not be long. I promise... No really.

ROFL I have 2 of them ;)

Humming along nicely. 1400W doesn't raise any kind of temp on the pcbs.
I'm limited to 3kW, so I'll report back when I stick a load in the washing machine.

As for fuses... I'm going to put a footprint for 15x5mm fuse holders, which will sit nicely in the space, so glass fuse, axial glass or fuse wire will be the choices.

sounds good, some reason i don't get email notifications when there is a new post.

They go through the Bermuda triangle... you'll get them in 60 years.

I'll be honest, I'm really excited to start building packs based on your design
 
Your PCB design looks great, I really like the backplane. It has "server" look and feel.

I have a batch of Jehu's V2 boards for testing which I ordered over the weekend but I have yet to get my hands on them.

I am enjoying the increase of PCB projects out there, while they cost a little more, I think there is a lot of value in the way they go together from a build and long term maintenance standpoint.

I want to take a wack at trying to design my own... I recently download KiCad and Eagle in hopes to "figure it out"
 
It's not rocket surgery, so the best of luck and don't forget to show us the results.

It may not be rocket surgery, but its still easier said than done.

I am constantly flying down a different rabbit hole at each turn with these projects, but right now I am digging through a pile of paperwork, maybe I have an electronics engineering degree in there somewhere I forgot about.
 
The whole setup would perfectly fit into 19 server cases and racks...

LOL... didnt know rockets need surgeons :D
You probably meant Rocket Science? :p

Anyway... keep up the good work and Im still waiting for the gerber files mate.
 
Fuse holders just arrived and tested on the layout. I got the closest type to the cheap Chinese stuff.
So, standard 20mm fuses, axial fuses, or just plain fuse wire are on the menu.
I'll have the gerbers up in a couple of hours.

Great stuff grumble, If we are voting i would like to simple change a fuse in the event of something bad, this taking down packs and soldering to fix anissues as a blown fuse just seems alot to me so, removable fuses...
